Authors: Liu Peterson S, Scott Donoughe J, O'Neal D, Mombell K, GomezLeonardelli D Abstract INTRODUCTION: The process for working up scaphoid fractures from frontline providers to the specialty care clinic is variable. Initial imaging can often be negative and the management algorithm is not clearly defined. Delays in diagnosis are a contributing factor to scaphoid nonunion. Fractures may not be identified by frontline providers on initial presentation because of radiographically occult injuries. If not treated promptly, scaphoid fractures may be complicated by nonunion, avascular necrosis, and osteoarthritis. ...

‚ÄčThe wrist is not commonly aspirated in the emergency department, but emergent arthrocentesis may be indicated for extreme or concerning cases, and tapping the wrist to determine the underlying pathology or relieve pain may be of great value. The synovial fluid from the joint space can be analyzed for crystals, infection, and blood. This information may help determine the overall plan and aid in decision-making and consultation. The ultimate treatment plan may include admission, intravenous antibiotics, multiple aspirations, and even surgical washout.A swollen, painful wrist that is hot to the touch is concerning for sep...

Conclusions: Our results show that psychological factors are more strongly related to pain levels prior to non-invasive treatment in patients with osteoarthritis of the first carpometacarpal joint than patient characteristics and X-ray scores, which implies the important role of these factors in the reporting of symptoms. More research is needed to determine whether psychological factors will also affect treatment outcomes for patients treated non-invasively for osteoarthritis of the first carpometacarpal joint.IMPLICATIONS FOR REHABILITATIONPain is the most important complaint for patients with osteoarthritis of the first...

Surgical treatment involves resecting these “bone stops”. In the literature, these osteophytic lesions are more common than cartilage lesions, which suggests they may occur beforehand. The aim...

CONCLUSIONS: Acetabular coverage and proximal femoral head-neck junction morphology, were found to partially correlate with the location of hip fractures and do not fully elucidate fracture type susceptibility. PMID: 31296067 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionTwenty years after open rotator cuff repair, the rate of osteoarthritis was 29%. Massive rotator cuff tears were significantly associated with a higher rate of osteoarthritis. Less osteoarthritis was observed when suprasupinatus healed.Level of evidenceIV.

SOCIETA' ITALIANA CHIRURGHI ORTOPEDICI DELL'OSPEDALITA' PRIVATA ACCREDITATA, Vasta S, Zampogna B, Uribe-Echevarria Marbach B, Gao Y, Papalia R, Amendola A Abstract High tibial osteotomy (HTO) utilizing a medial opening wedge has become a common and effective surgical technique for treatment of isolated medial compartment knee osteoarthritis secondary to varus malalignment. To reduce the risk of under- or overcorrection, accurate preoperative planning is important. This is a radiographic study to evaluate the reliability of preoperative measurement on full-length weight-...

ConclusionThe authors propose that this case represent an uncommon subset of osteoarthritis. Regular review, both clinically and radiologically, is required to assess speed of progression and to prevent rapid loss of bone stock without the surgeon being aware.
